So a couple of days last week was spend preparing the class.
New patterns were made and turned into kits, fabric was cut, wool weighted and stores in platic bags ect. The kits have to include all the materials for the bears they are going to sew in the class. This time I had two models to choose from. A tiny one about 3 inch and a large one about 5.5 inch.
Along with the kits I also bring lots of mohair to choose from for different projects. Long pile mohair, short pile mohair, mini mohair, different size eyes and join sets.
Here you can see everything lined up, just wait for the participants. I totally forgot to take a photo during the class - duhh. They all had a great time sewing these little ones, and went home with a little bear each - some even with two. This is always so much fun.
Now the spring shows are approaching. First one to come is Sydney Teddy Bear Fair on March 22th. I won´t be there in person, only some of my bears. They will be displayed on the International Traders Table. I would have loved to travel with them - maybe some other time.
Next show is the Spring Theme Online Show at Bear Paths on March 25th. I have 3 little ones available at this show.
I´m curently working on bears for a real show here in Denmark held on March 28th and 29th.
These little ones are patiently waiting for some more sisters and brothers to be finished for the fair. I have about 8 finished at this time - just about 10 more to go ... Oh well, I´ll have to see how things turns out. Thankfully I have a few days off from work later this week - phew.
Better get back to some bearmaking.
Have a lovely day.
